EVAN M. LOPEZ: Gaybama?


To distance myself from the cartoon-ish style I had been using in illustrations for so long, I went a little closer to reality for this piece. I was asked to create something highlighting Obama's run for the LGBT vote. Actually I was asked to make obama look a little more homosexual, but that bit didn't run. Instead I set a couple, fresh off the vote, amidst an "Outfest" (actual festival) backdrop. Im fairly happy with it, although its a bit too pastel for my taste. But it works.

Here is the first "shopped" photo. Although whimsical, it sadly didn't go to print for such a strictly-written article. Oh well again.

Pop takes another shot, neat,
Points out the same amber
Stain on his shorts that I’ve got on mine, and
Makes me smell his smell, coming

Sound pretty gay to me.
